I am on an amazing journey
I am listening to every 1994 show in order, mining for gold.
Set 1 Highlights: Lightning Bolt is back, baby! Very good Stranger and TLEO to kick of this multi-night run at the Garden. Unfortunately, it sounds like Bobby went to Guitar Center and bought a $15 digital distortion pedal on the recommendation of a high school kid in a punk-ska-metal band. Pretty ironic that Dan Healy was dismissed for turning Bobby way down in the mixes, and when he is gone, this is what we get.
Set 2 HIGHlights: China>Rider is quite nice. UJB jam is fairly interesting. SOTM features some excellent "be with you" moments.
All in all, an okay show, but nothing great. Warming up.

A bit curmudgeonly...
I find Bobby's guitar sound during this era to be essentially unlistenable. I meander through Fall '94 looking for those big Jerry moments on SMR or SOTM, but find myself cringing more often than not. Glad to have this, nevertheless!

Fall '94 Opening Night Boston Run
UJB->Drumz->Watchtower->SOTM is perhaps worth a visit. Longer, somewhat exploratory Uncle John's segues into a good space - typical for the period - and a sweet and emotional Standing on the Moon. Garcia present for finale.

I sang a little while and then flew on.

Worth a listen
Thank you Charlie!
This is the last performance of They Love Rach Other by The Grateful Dead.
